The following protocol must be followed to help keep our children safe and healthy. The protocol is primarily based on rules and guidelines provided by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the State of New Jersey, and the Monmouth County Health Department.
Please keep your child home from school if he or she has any of the following:
- Illness during the night or in the morning of a school day
- Vomiting in the past 24 hours or severe nausea, abdominal pains or diarrhea
- Persistent and/or productive cough
- Fever of 100 Degrees or More*
- Red Draining Eyes
- Undiagnosed Rash
- Red, painful throat or glands on the side of the neck that are swollen
- Flu-like symptoms
NOTE: To be able to return to school, students must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of any medication that has fever reducing ingredients. (Many medications may contain fever reducing ingredients such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Please read the label and consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you have any questions)
Please call the school nurse if your child contracts a communicable condition such as:
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Strep Throat
If your child is diagnosed with one of these conditions, please submit a note from your health care provider that states that your child may return to school (Please do not send it in or have it faxed to the school after your child has returned to school).
